My 14 ga nips were done 9 Jan, so it may still be too early to think about the next larger ga. But the nips ("buds"?) themselves have definitely enlarged some, and now look like they would handle something thicker. However, - Unlike the PA (which was definitely much looser in that time period), the nip rings are still tight in their piercings, about were they were at 10 - 14 days. Question is: Do nips self-stretch? Or does it always require a taper, some discomfort, and a new healing process?
I read mentions of nip migration. I've only had mine a month, and they look quite OK, but I'm curious. What causes migration? What are initials signs of it? How soon after piercing does migration begin? How long after piercing can I stop worrying about it?
I have actually wanted to get my nipples pierced since I was about 6. I'm almost 25 now and i finally did it. I'm sure you guys all know the process right now, clean, mark, breath and done (mine were done free hand. the sensation was interesting, definitely a sharp pain. My nipples have always been really sensitive and I'm into nipple play, so they were already large and tough. Will post picture later
June of 2014 I had to remove my right nipple piercing due to migration. It was slowly moving forward and one side of it was pushing forward. I emailed a photo to my pierced and was advised I should remove it and give it at least 3 months to heal before getting it repierced.
Since removing I had wanted to get it done again. So 6 months later made the two he drive from my house to the piercer and in 10 minutes I had my nipple repierced. The pain was very minimal compared to the last time.
Just got my right nipple pierced yesterday with CBR . I got the left one about three months ago with straight barbell. So, to make it match each other, I changed my right one with CBR as well. Really happy to be pierced for the second time, the old one looked perfect but after saw the result from the new one, is that too far back for the placement? What do you guys think?.... I asked the piercer and he convinced me that once it healed, both gonna look same. He said piercing tends to migrate to find right position. Any comments and advice would be appreciated Smiling
Don't count your chickens before they hatch! Now they are back with a vengeance! No redness or swelling or any sign of real trouble, so assume it's just normal? A shooter glass of lukewarm SSS solves the problem - but only for 4 -5 hours. (My piercer said "at least once a day". Hah!) My question is: How long should I expect this to continue?
Not to dominate the forum - but I am amazed at how comfortable I am barely 3 days after the piercings! Also, since I elected to have mine done consecutively in the same procedure, I'm curious about the angst that prompts piercees to have them done at seperate appointments - or simultaneously by 2 (hopefully) coordinated piercers. (That's about the scariest scenario I can imagine - now that I have nip jewelry!) Nice theory, but trust me - 2 acute simultaneous traumas are probably twice as bad as one. "Crusties"? I only had a couple of incidents with the PA - and only in the third day .
I had both mine done yesterday (an unplanned sequel to a PA back in Nov.) First one wasn't any worse than the initial PA, and the second one a few moments later was probably actually a bit more intense - but I was ready for it and knew it would be tolerable. I'm not thrilled by the persistent, lingering discomfort, which is worse than the PA, but dimished considerably after 6 hrs. of sleep . (My piercer alerted me that initial healing would not be as easy as the PA was.) I got 14Ga. circular barbells, had preferred 12 ga.
My nipples were pierced at different studios, (I couldn't bear the shock/pain of them both being done at the same time!). They had different gauges and were different ring types.
I waited until they were both fully healed, and finally have just had matching jewelery fitted, which involved a stretch of my left one from 1.7mm to 2.4mm.
I love them now.
Well I couldn't take it any longer. I went and got my nipples pierced again today.
I went with blue titanium 14ga cbr's. It really wasn't that painful. I can feel them now but it feels good. Hopefully the healing will be uneventful and fast.
First thing was to fill out the paperwork like usual. He then had me select my jewlery. They had a special going on so I was able to go with some color this time and went with the titanium for the same price as SS.
He had me sit in the chair cleaned me up and then marked both nipples.
